Official: Hermine having less impact on GA than expected

Hermine was the first hurricane to hit Florida in more than a decade when it came ashore early Friday as a Category 1 storm.

After pushing through Georgia, Hermine is expected to move into the Carolinas and up the East Coast with the potential for drenching rain and deadly flooding. In advance of the storm, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency in 56 counties.
